AMATEO is a Creative Europe supported European Network for Active Participation in Cultural Activities. This year they will be holding their Connect Plus conference in Edinburgh from Tuesday 1 to Thursday 3 October 2019.

In partnership with  by Voluntary Arts and Luminate (Scotland's Creative Ageing organisation), and supported by Creative Scotland, Amateo is presenting this programme to celebrate the International Day of the Older Person on the 1st of October.

Connect+ Conversations aims to bring together practitioners and Amateo member organisations (some will be linked to the member organisations who arrive with workshop participants) to explore possible collaborations. Kate Deans from Creative Europe Desk UK-Scotland will present Creative Europe funding and opportunities for European collaboration, and there will also be a presentation on Erasmus + support for vocational training, volunteer placements and youth exchanges.
